It is being reported that The First Lady has been cancelled by Showtime after just one season. The news comes less than two months after the drama wrapped its 10-episode freshman run, which ultimately received a mixed critical reception.

The series was meant to be an anthology, with each season exploring the personal and political lives of women at the heart of the White House. Season 1 focused on the lives of Michelle Obama, Betty Ford, and Eleanor Roosevelt - from their journeys to Washington, family life, and important political contributions.
